fiberglass fender option

i was looking through OFF ROAD magazine at the mall and came across a small article about a company that offers polyurethane ranger fenders for 98+ rangers.

here is the link: Kartek Off Road - Polyurethane Fenders

the only drawback is it seems like it's only available in a 4" flare.

That's cool. I wonder how the paint would do if you bend them up.

after clicking the link it explains if you use the right primer you will be fine. thats where Flex agents come into paint and primer. a properly painted plastic part will not pop the paint off when flexed. have you ever seen a soccer moms mini van or SUV with those plastic bumpers with a nice tin can effect in a corner of the car? ever notice *usually* if it is a factor paint job with flex agents the paint looks normal and not cracked

These fenders are can also be painted when using a primer designed for flexing and plastics. When using the right primer, the paint will not chip or crack.

Little late there, Stone's lackey!

The video and pictures are distracting. I was always better at reading picture books anyway.

I posted again because I'm amazed you didn't even try to read or anything to find the answer to your question. Felt it deserved a second posting of "wtf"
